2011 Focus SES sedan springs

I just bought ford racing springs M-5560-ZXM1. On a couple of sites like summit it said it will fit but on one other site it said it doesn't. Does anybody know firsthand??

hope this will help clarify. but i don't know if you should replace the springs without their shock/ strut counterpart. i think it will cause the stock struts/ shocks to bottom out and cause excessive wear and lead to failure:( hopefully someone more versed in these matters will chime in.
This is what i have installed on my '11

the factory strut top is tiny compared to the frpp struts that usually accompany the springs. now im not sure on how they will fit with the factory struts... another thing to consider is that you are going to be sitting 2 inches lower or there abouts. bottoming out may be a concern
